St. Bonaventure University will host a presentation on West Valley, N.Y., the location of a former nuclear reprocessing plant, and its implications for environmental health in the region at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6, in the Walsh Center Amphitheater.
Phil Winger, associate vice president for facilities, and Rich Place, ’05, managing editor of the Salamanca Press, will lead the presentation.
Winger worked at the West Valley Demonstration Project for 12 years. For “West Valley in Our Backyard,” he will address the culture of nuclear facilities that he witnessed firsthand.
Place, whose hometown is West Valley, will approach the presentation as a member of the community. For the residents of West Valley, the nuclear facility provided good-paying jobs, and so its potential health and environmental repercussions were somewhat overlooked.
“West Valley in Our Backyard” is linked to the All Bonaventure Reads 2013 selection, “Full Body Burden: Growing Up in the Nuclear Shadow of Rocky Flats” by Kristen Iversen.
